Do you want to join us on a journey to change the trillion dollar travel industry? We are looking for the best and brightest who share our passion for travellers, data, and product.
FindHotel believes travel is the one thing that really opens minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our mission is to get every traveller in the world the best accommodation deal.

We are growing fast and looking for a Senior Backend Engineer to join us in becoming a global travel category leader.
We build highly performant, scalable services and components that power our product and provide our users with the best content and deals the accommodation industry has to offer. Scalability, reliability, and great performances are the core of what we build. We work with modern stacks (Go, Elixir, Node.js, Python) and, as we embrace the DevOps culture, our infrastructure-as-code in the cloud (AWS) is managed via tools like Docker, Jenkins, and Terraform.
Should you join us, not only you will get exposed to some bright engineers with a passion for delivering great software, you will also get the chance to collaborate with team members from a broader range of disciplines, including data analysts and scientists, product owners, UX experts, and marketing specialists.
What you will actually be doing / responsibilities
What a day in the office might look like
In the morning, you and your fellow engineers sit down with the Product Owner to discuss the performance of a not-so-fast API endpoint. Comparing the ideal performance to the data collected by our monitoring systems, you brainstorm together a few ideas of how to improve the service's performance and design a scalable solution. After lunch, you jump onto an open issue and prepare a pull request that improves the infrastructure's reliability for one of the most delicate components. Before the end of the day, you put together some ideas on how to improve another component's design and organize an architecture review session with some engineers across teams to discuss the benefits and costs of your proposed solution.
